  • 1. European spectrum management:expected impact & long term vision Pearse O’Donohue Radio Spectrum Policy Unit DG INFSOAll for Broadband – Broadband for All Conference Budapest, 3 March 2011
  • 2. General Considerations• 2020 Strategy  Growth & innovation• Digital Agenda  Broadband Targets• Not just mobile broadband  all internal market sectors
  • 3. Challenges for spectrum policy• Growing demand for mobile data• Development of Digital Television• Interference & Cohabitation• Technological developments• Future proofing our strategy• Licensing legacy
  • 4. Where is action at EU level warranted?• Fostering technically efficient use• Internal market – economies of scale• Refarming / rights of use• Competition• Stimulating innovation• Cross-border interference
  • 5. EU action at international level• Coordination with trading partners• World Radiocommunications Conference (WRC)• Standardisation and spectrum management• Basic TV and satellite allocations
  • 6. RSPP objectives• Sufficient spectrum, on time• Flexibility, innovation and investment• General authorisations when possible• Effective competition• Avoid fragmentation: technical harmonisation; economies of scale;• Avoid harmful interference• Human health protection.
  • 7. Enhanced efficiency and flexibility• By 2013, where possible, allocation for BB in contiguous blocks of 10MHz;• Foster collective/ shared use of spectrum;• Increased cooperation on standardisation;• Selection conditions and procedures should promote investments and efficient use;• Harmonised tradable bands, guidelines on authorisation conditions and procedures;• Ensure effective use, avoid hoarding
  • 8. Wireless broadband communications (I)• Sufficient spectrum to support 30 Mbps target• By 1.1.2012, authorisation of existing harmonised EU spectrum should be completed;• By 1.1.2013, 800 MHz band available for BB, except 2015 in exceptional justified cases;• Examination of further spectrum under 1 GHz.
  • 9. Wireless broadband communications (II)• Encourage use of 800 MHz band in rural areas;• PMSE not to be adversely affected;• Commission to make tradable already harmonised bands;• Commission to ensure availability of spectrum for harmonised satellite BB services.
  • 10. High speed data growth is not the only challenge• Development of digital television• Interference & cohabitation• Delivery of content vs preservation of platforms• Development of hybrid TV• « Broadband TV »
  • 11. and it’s not just about broadcasters vs. broadband• Internal Market sectors using spectrum• Transport, eHealth, smart meteting, public safety, wireless microphones…..
  • 12. Inventory and monitoring of spectrum usage• Review & inventory of existing use and possible future needs• Assess technically efficient/ inefficient uses and sharing possibilities• Future needs based on demand• Review private and public uses; identify bands to assign/reallocate to increase efficiency.
  • 13. New management models ?• Coordinated approach to usage: - collective use of spectrum - dynamic spectrum access• Exclusive use spectrum / licensed• Non-exclusive use / unlicensed• Member States to apply efficiency and inventory to other bands?
  • 14. Long Term Vision?• Convergence, hybrid IP or TV• Spectrum scarcity• WRC 2016 – future broadband?• Collective Use / dynamic sharing• Technological developments ??
  • 15. The Radio Spectrum Policy ProgrammeThank You! Pearse O’Donohue Head of Unit Radio Spectrum Policy DG INFSO
